Great salads and appetizers, especially the grilled octopus and the burrata mozzarella imported from Italy. All the pastas looked good but the special pesto pasta dish was great as was the Maccheroni Alla Mugnaia. Great selection of Italian wines complement dinner and deserts worth sharing....More

if you like food from the Abruzzi region of Italy--and have an adventurous streak-- you will love this place. My favorite in all of Philadelphia. All the pasta is house-made; the bread is fresh: crusty on the outside, perfect on the inside; the ragouts are...More

Beautiful Seeting, especially for outside seating. Good food with a rustic vibe. A bit expensive for what you get. The staff is a bit standoffish.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Philly. Not the typical Italian-American fare, the menu is based on the Abruzzo region of Italy. All of the pasta is made in-house and the salumi is cured by them as well. The wine list is also from...More

Food was good but extremely expensive and small portions for a no name South Philadelphia restaurant on a Wednesday night. Had better less expensive meals from famous chefs. Wine selection very limited and severely overpriced. Would do better in center city.
